I suspect when stories don’t contain an image, people “assume” it’s a reply to another story and just scroll on by. Because, of course, there are no real “comments” here, every comment is a “story.” So there’s an assumption (I think) that if you’re writing a story, you’ll add an image — but if you’re commenting, you won’t bother to add an image.
